Raul is a good guy Tommy I've known him since he fought a good friend Alex Rios in Ft Worth. Was a battle of two big punchers. Both wound up with big shots Raul's landed a spl;it second early Alex was KO'd in the first roundYup, Marquez looks far from shot to me too C.J. I cant pick him over AA or Pavlik though. He has a chance against Sturm IMO.
LOL Lance I seriously doubt youve ever seen Alex fight. Ask Terry Norris what he thought of him. Norris caught Alex square several times and couldnt put him away. Alex gave him all he wanted in return tooit was an entertaining fight, especially with the fighting after the bell. But marquez is not a big puncher. Rios just has a chin of china.
I actually own a few of his fights so your wrong there. Marquez knocked him out in 1 round, enough said. I'll give rios the fact that he's a big puncher but he either knocks them out of gets knocked out. And just to own you, Norris put him away in 5 rounds. He also won every round of that fight until the stoppage.[/QUOTE
I was at that fight Lance covering it for the Boxing Times I talked to both fighters after. Even Norris said it was nip and tuck and what a tough fight Alex gave him. Alex rocked him several times
